If there’s ever a boutique shop that contains the rich and enchanting feel of India with the right touch of modernity, I just found it. Nestled in the heart of Toronto’s finest wedding district the lovely boutique, Liloo at Home, brings an array of services.

Liloo at Home’s unquestionable customer service and completely unique style will entice every bride and groom. It’s modern-infused indian-inspired products and endless list of services will bring you back for more and more.

Liloo has a wide selection of exotic wedding favor boxes that contain a bit of everything  – culture, India, elegance, class. Couples can customize these boxes to their taste and budget. And then there is more – a collection of super gorgeous bridal wraps, which come in all the trendy wedding colors for the use of brides, bridesmaid or wedding guests gifts.

The shops primary focus is home linens, decor accents and special gift items. Each and every item Liloo has to offer contains a Canadian-Indian inspired touch. No stranger to textiles, the shop has endless options of hand selected exotic and colorful textiles.

Liloo at Home opened in November 2005, owner Sapna Alim shares with us how it all began: Liloo at home was born out of a journey of personal discovery and a reconnection to my roots. It was a vehicle that would allow me to travel and have one foot in each of the countries that are dear to me; India and Canada. This shop is a marriage between my eastern roots and my western way of life, allowing me to merge my two worlds. Not being able to find a shop in Toronto where my idea of Modern India would fit, I decided to create one. The original concept of Liloo at home began in February 2004, with my first visit back to my native land in over a decade. It was the experience of my lifetime and the foundation upon which I have built my shop!
